Richmond Dragway RECOMMENDS engine containment devices (engine diapers) for ALL Vehicles in 2014
Published by Johnny Davis on February 3, 2014
Engine Diapers protect, you, your car and your fellow competitor. Following the lead of Royce Miller and Maryland International Raceway, Richmond Dragway is officially recommending the use of Engine Diapers for all purpose built racecars that participate in our programs this season.
We are encouraging all drivers that race purpose built race cars (not street cars) to really consider putting an engine diaper on their car. The IHRA rulebook requires one in all of their Pro Classes plus Top Sportsman, Top Dragster and Quick Rod. Also any car that is Supercharged or Nitrous injected that runs 7.99 or quicker 1/4 or 5.00 or quicker 1/8 mile is required to have a diaper per IHRA rules.
We’ve witnessed countless avoidable accidents from oil getting on the tires – resulting in long unnecessary track clean-ups. We feel all racers should consider installing an engine diaper on their car. No one will be turned away at tech if they do not have one, we are just trying to point out the real benefit to every racer. Installing an engine diaper could save your car, it could save you from possible injury or maybe even save your life. It will also save valuable track time for the enjoyment of fellow racers and fans. It will help reduce track expenses for cleanup and the extra time saved from cleanup will allow more cars to go down the track – resulting in earlier event completion.
Engine Diapers are reasonably priced and provide EXCELLENT insurance for your safety. Call or visit our local speedshops including AED Performance (www.aedperformance.com or 804.271.9107) or Performance Dynamics (www.performancedynamicsspeedshop.com or 804.427.5908) for pricing and additional information!
